AZODIS-250 Tablet

Azithromycin

Composition:

Each AZODIS-250 tablet contains azithromycin 250mg.

Description:

Azithromycin, which is a semi-synthetic antibiotic, belongs to the macrolide subclass of azalides. This drug works by inhibiting the protein synthesis in bacteria. In spite of its structure being similar to that of erythromycin, azithromycin is a lot more stable and efficient than erythromycin. Azithromycin is reported to have a broad spectrum activity against Gram +ve and Gram-ve bacteria.

Its mechanism of action involves its binding to the 50S subunit of 70S ribosome of bacteria. This binding inhibits the translation of mRNA, which blocks the synthesis of necessary proteins. This will eventually lead to the death of bacteria. This drug, however, has no effect on the nucleic acid synthesis.
